  • Allen coaching Tigers despite knee surgery

    A familiar face has been missing from the Rockwood Tigers sideline this season. Longtime defensive coordinator Jeff Allen is recovering from knee surgery and has been coaching from the press box, a place he hasn't been since his first year as an assistant coach to John Webb in 1996.
    “It's hard,” Allen said of not being able to roam the sideline on game night. “It's hard not being able to be hands on. I want to see them eye-to-eye when I say something to them (players). I hate not being in the huddle during a time out to make adjustments.”
